OnLive, the leader in cloud gaming, today released an exciting new service for Second Life users. SL Go, now in open beta, is a mobile Second Life viewer for Android that delivers a fully immersive desktop-like experience on tablets.
With SL Go, you can experience Second Life from anywhere you have Wi-Fi or 4G connectivity, with ultra high-quality graphics, full shaders, shadows, and the Advanced Lightning Model on Android devices. Not only can you get high-quality graphics on a low-powered device, but you also don’t have to sacrifice frame rate or draw distance for high fidelity inworld explorations. Thanks to super-fast gigabit connections with OnLive’s high-performance gaming servers, objects and textures rez quickly when logging in and teleporting. OnLive has clocked the SL Go viewer at upwards of 200 fps set to Ultra with Maximum Render Distance, allowing people to participate in events, engage in combat games, and generally enjoy immersion in Second Life at a level never before possible on a mobile device.
With SL Go, OnLive has brought touchscreen interaction to the Second Life experience, but if you prefer keyboard and mouse, you can opt to connect these devices and interact with your friends in the same way you always have. SL Go gives you access to edit menus, inventory, preference settings and chat management just like the Second Life Viewer on your home computer.
You’ll need an OnLive account to launch the app, and then you’ll log into Second Life with the same credentials you’ve always used. To learn more, register, and get started with a free trial now, visit slgo.onlive.com.
For the time being, SL Go is available to users logging in from the US, Canada and the UK. OnLive plans to expand the service to other locales in the future, so if you are interested in having SL Go in your region, sign up here. The company is also pursuing an iOS version of the app. You can sign up here to be notified when it is released.
They made a commercial for it. I don't know having it at a laundry mat is a good location to make this commercial, but overall its pretty cool in what there doing.
Hi Mr Wilson
Thanks for such a speedy response or reply to my post.
The 'ping line' I mean is what I read when my bandwidth(loss)/framerate/ping are set to show as in: 33xzfyq.jpg
Soon as that blue line becomes jagged and doesnt lie flat I run into awful problems including rubber-banding. It usually happens when I go into a zone and try to do a buggy lap. Many other buggy drivers have told me that it has been terrible for them lately as well.
I'd be happy to go through your diagnostics. My av name is RebelRebel and I could log on and stay logged on all night if it would help.
thanks in anticipation Read More...
This zone has been booked up for a week with events lasting many hours without the event-holder ever even making an appearance.
This really sucks and stops the regular crowd from holding fun events including hosting to skill up, card playing and the buggy laps we have been enjoying on the cool ramp builds we have been entertained with for many months.
While I am here 'ranting' I'd like to ask whether there is any chance of There running normally again any time in the near future? When I log on and I see a totally jagged ping line, I might as well log off again as things just don't run well then.
any help with either situation would be greatly appreciated ty Read More...
